Description

Thank you for this addon! Is it also possible to syncronize my main adressbook (Personal Adress Book) with Google? I find it a little complicated to have this additional adressbook.

I am currently doing that right now. Steps that I did to do as such... Thunderbird's main address book is named abook.mab and the address book that was being used by Google Contacts was abook-1.mab.

Assuming that you are using Windows 7 or better, they are located c:\users\{username}\AppData\Roaming\Thunderbird\{TB-Profile}\

You can determine what address book by viewing prefs.js located in the TB Profile.

The line looks similar to this line: user_pref("gmcont.gworley1@gmail.com.aburi", "moz-abmdbdirectory://abook.mab");

1) Close Thunderbird (this is a must step)

2) navigate to the TB profile.

3) make backups of both address books abook.mab and the address book for Google Contacts.

4) delete abook.mab

5) rename the TB (in my case it was abook-1.mab) to abook.mab

6) edit with a pure text editor like notepad... prefs.js

7) find the line that looks similar to this line: user_pref("gmcont.gworley1@gmail.com.aburi", "moz-abmdbdirectory://abook.mab");

8) change the abook-?.mab to abook.mab and save and exit your editor.

9) open up Thunderbird

10) open up the address book editor

11) delete the address book Google Contacts was using as Thunderbird recreated the address book since it was missing.

One could say use use the Thunderbird Configuration Editor, I tried that and it didn't work.
